This delicious recipe comes from Cook's Illustrated. DH and I made these cookies for Christmas and everyone raved about them. According to Cook's Illustrated, the dough will keep in the refrigerator for up to three days or in the freezer for up to two weeks. The cookies are best eaten the day they are glazed. Prep time does not include the 45 minutes dough is in freezer (or 2 hrs refrigerated) or one hour cooling time.
Found online. Author states: "Vanilla and espresso heighten the rich, chocolaty flavor in these irresistible biscuits. As an alternative to round or drop biscuits, try a large heart- or star-shaped cutter." Refrigerating berries for 3 hours is not included in prep time.
This cookie contains both cocoa and dark chocolate, with nibbed almonds added -- simple and just right to help fill the holiday cookie tins! Depending on how large or small you roll the little batter balls, you'll get between 35 and 45 cookies. If you cannot find the nibbed almonds, simply crush flaked almonds. I use a good-quality semi-sweet dark chocolate slab for this recipe, not choc chips. Not a very sweet cookie.
These easy to make waffles are sure to impress your family or guests. They may be enjoyed anytime and are worth the extra time and effort.
The waffles and syrup taste as good as they look. The waffles are crisp and tender, while the syrup is sweet, tart and tangy.
For a super easy dessert, add vanilla ice cream to the waffles, which have been drizzled in raspberry lemon syrup to create an exceptional ice cream sandwich, so good.
This is a recipe from a cookbook called "Classic International Recipes". It is supposed to be one of the national dishes of Switzerland and is often served daily. It is often served with "Veal with Cream Sauce". The only thing I changed was to add some garlic (as usual). Please note: This is supposed to make one big cake, that is then quartered to serve 4. Chilling time is not included in the cooking time....I cook the potatoes in the morning, and prepare the cake in the evening.
One of my "found" cut-outs from a magazine at some point and time in my life. Sorry I can't give more information. I'm actually quite surprised it is not already on 'Zaar but I do need to save it for future reference as my goal is to one day not have one cut-out recipe anywhere in my kitchen but have them all saved here on 'Zaar. :)
I saw Melissa make these on the Next Food Network Star show and wanted to try these for my family. Quicker baking time with the smaller portions. NOTE: I layered the potatoes, cheese, seasonings and onion several times and cooked it closer to an hour in my oven.
This recipe is popular in the canton (region) of Vaud, which is located in Romandy, the French-speaking southwestern part of Switzerland. They are rustic and delicious! I modified the recipe because the original called for lard and I didn't see any reason to waste good bacon fat! Also, they want you to boil your potatoes whole, cool, then peel and dice them but I couldn't really see why you need to take the extra steps. Enjoy!
DH and I served Williams-Sonoma's Braised Short Ribs atop of this herbed spaetzle (also from Williams-Sonoma), with a side of broccoli rabe with pancetta and garlic. It was really tasty. DH and my colander did not have holes large enough to sift the dough so we used a metal steaming basket which worked perfectly.
Adapted from the October 17, 2009 issue of Family Circle Magazine. Submitted by a reader, Shelly Fisher, who created it after having Swiss fondue in Europe. I don't think the garlic works, so I have made it optional.
